Problems installing qiime2 version 2019.10

Hi everybody,
I’m trying to install the new version of qiime2 (v=2019.10) via conda with the following command:

conda install -c bioconda -n qiime2-2019.10 qiime2

I’ve always used this command to install older versions of qiime2 and I’ve never had any problem but this time this error has ocurred:

Collecting package metadata (current_repodata.json): done
Solving environment: failed with repodata from current_repodata.json, will retry with next repodata source.

Has anyone had this problem? How can I solve it? Thank you and happy new year!
